Officer Swisher serves as the School Resource Officer. In August 2017, the Shelby Board of Education approved a contract, in conjunction with the City of Shelby, to hire an SRO. Having Officer Swisher in the schools not only provides safety and security, it has allowed the district to reinstate the DARE programs. This program teaches fifth grade students about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and other unhealthy lifestyle choices. Although primarily based at the high school, Officer Swisher is available to go to every building in the district as needed.
